World Wind lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there.

Virtually visit any place in the world. Look across the Andes, into the Grand Canyon, over the Alps, or along the African Sahara.

World Wind offers the following built-in features:

* Earth - The planet we live on.
* Moon - Usually the brightest object in the night sky.
* Venus and Mars - Our inner and outer neighbours in solar system - the "morning/evening star" and the "red planet".
* Jupiter - The king of solar system planets.
* SDSS - Nothing less than the universe - the sky with stars and galaxies.
